For nearly three decades, the Walton Family Foundation has continued the philanthropic vision begun by Walmart founders Sam and Helen Walton. They had an unshakable belief in the power of individuals to transform their lives. Today the Walton Family Foundation, led by Sam and Helen’s children and grandchildren, focuses on awarding grants that drive not just incremental, but transformative, change.During 2014, the foundation invested more than $375 million in domestic and international projects that addressed significant social and environmental issues, and sought to create exciting new opportunities.

Headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas, with offices in Washington, D.C.; Jersey City, New Jersey; and Denver, Colorado, a staff/consultant base of approximately 75 associates conducts day-to-day operations.

While there are unmistakable similarities when it comes to Walmart founders and a vision of a better life for individuals and communities, the Walton Family Foundation exists independently of the Walmart Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Walmart. Each of these foundations operates with separate sources of funding and governance.
